Beauty Queen Distributes Eye Glasses in Isiokpo Community

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

It was celebration galore recently for residents of Ogbodo community in Isiokpo, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State, when a beauty queen brought light to those having eye problems in the area.

Miss Health South-South, Queen Juliet Okoroafor (Miss Health South South) alongside her ‘ICare Project’ team, which included opticians, visited the place to celebrate the festive periods with residents to lighten their worlds.

Queen Juliet distributed about 200 medicated eye glasses to residents of the community having eye challenges and they could not hide the joy for this.

It was gathered that about 500 people who had various eye defects were treated and given drugs, while 200 eye patients went home with medicated glasses.

The visit to Ogbodo came barely five months after Queen Juliet’s coronation as Miss Health South-South.

Since her coronation, she and her team have visited various parts of the South-South region, to sensitize the people on how to live a healthy life, as well as treat those faced with various health challenges.

It was in the course of her tour of towns and communities in the South-South region that she first came to Ogbodo where she found out that so many people in that community, particularly the aged ones, were afflicted with various types of eye diseases.
